Ingredients
Graham cracker crust
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (7oz / 200g)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (113g)
Strawberry cream cheese filling
  • 2 heaping cups strawberries, hulled and pureed (380g)
  • 2 cups cream cheese (16oz / 455g)
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar (150g)
  • 2 vanilla beans* (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (240ml)
Instructions
  1. Blend strawberries with a hand blender until smooth. Place a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and set a fine mesh strainer on top. Pour strawberries through the strainer into the saucepan. Press fruit and liquid through the strainer and discard solids. Bring to a boil for about 5-10 minutes until it is reduced by half. Transfer to a bowl and let cool to room temperature. 

  2. In a large bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter just until combined. Transfer to a parchment paper layered 9" (23cm) round springform pan. Evenly press crumbs into the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pan with the back of a measuring cup. Freeze for about 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, make the filling. In a large mixing bowl mix with a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment cream cheese on medium speed until creamy for about 1 minute. Add reduced strawberries, sugar, and vanilla* and mix until smooth. Add heavy whipping cream and mix until soft peaks form for about 1-2 minutes. 

  4. Pour filling into crust and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight until the filling is firm. Serve with whipped cream and strawberries on top if desired. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3 days.

Notes

NOTES:
*First, cut off the straight end of the vanilla bean. Then place the tip of your sharp knife below the curled end and cut the vanilla bean through the middle of the bean lengthwise. Although you don't need to cut it all the way through, it's ok when you do so. Then open the vanilla bean and scrape out the flavorful seeds with the back of your knife. Just use the seeds.

 

Substitutions:

 

Diced STRAWBERRIES:
After you have the filling ready to go, you can gently fold in some diced strawberries to enhance the flavor even more.

 

PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
If you don't have fresh vanilla beans, you can replace them with 2 tsp of pure vanilla extract.

 

CHOCOLATE GRAHAM CRACKERS
Replace regular graham crackers for chocolate graham crackers.

 

 

Consider adding in the following ingredients:

 

  • Add 1/4 cup (32 grams) of white chocolate chips.
  • Drizzle 2 tbsp (30 ml) with chocolate syrup on top of strawberry pie.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup (64 grams) of crushed Oreos in the filling.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Place the strawberry pie in the fridge for at least 4 hours to allow it time to set up before serving.
  • Serve with whipped topping and sliced strawberries.
